It turns out that Ron Smith’s ONLY water experience actually originates from his work with water colors… he is an artist. A well paid artist, but nonetheless, an artist.
Today, November 19, 2015, Olaf Landsgaard was having lunch with a long time Rosamond resident and as Olaf spoke loudly, concerning Ron Smith INTERIM RCSD General Manager, “Now that we have our guy in there [Interim GM, Ron Smith] we are moving so fast…with no experience and no water knowledge…he just keeps getting things done.
I keep telling him to keep moving forward, you can’t rest on your laurels.”
I simply cannot make this stuff up folks. More to follow.
I imagine that if any one of the other MORE QUALIFIED candidates decided to file a complaint with Kern County over the “illegal” hiring of a PAID political consultant WITHOUT experience over candidate with MUCH MORE technical expertise and knowledge, they might actually have success in court.
